It’s Pumpkin patch time!! Fall is finally here, the winds are softly blowing, the birds are singing and the weather is cooling down, at least a bit. No better time like the present to enjoy and bask in the glory of all things Pumpkin! J-bird’s fave….Pumpkin Pie.
He suddenly discovered it a few years ago and now EVERY Thanksgiving he specifically requests pumpkin pie for dessert. This Thanksgiving we will be celebrating a twofer with his visit from college and his 19th Birthday!!! And I’d like to try to make a homemade pumpkin pie, but first, I need PUMPKINS! So I’m heading to the Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival to pick my very own pumpkins for his special treat.
Finding events around town that the entire family can take part in seems to come few and far between. When I do find them I try to take the most advantage possible. The girls love going on outings and exploring new adventures. Are you ready to go pumpkin picking???
